The Danna K. Johnston Foundation empowers youth from diverse socio-economic backgrounds to become engaged and contributing members to their communities.

Our current efforts are focused on providing a supportive network to youth pursuing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) related degrees.


DKJ Scholars
The DKJ Scholars program provides underrepresented, academically-sound college students with a supportive network that is comprised of financial scholarships, internship referrals and/or networking opportunities.

Through DKJ Scholars, we are continuing to build our legacy of making meaningful impacts on students who have successfully demonstrated their desire and abilities through academics and community-focused activities. DKJ Scholars are required to maintain specific grade point averages, progress toward graduation and irrefutable community standing.
